Both PARCC and Smarter Balanced have decided to include multiple select items because being college and career ready often means representing your answer in multiple ways. Although Massachusetts is a PARCC state, all math educators should feel free to explore the Smarter Balanced Sample Items. They use the term non-traditional selected response items instead of multiple select and the example above is taken from their large bank of questions.
If you are wondering how to go about creating your own on-line multiple select items, I have the website for you! Open Ed just announced a new assessment creation tool that includes multiple select response questions. In order to use this tool, you must first set-up a free login at OpenEd.
